In the spring, I wander around the woods, meadows and walking paths for wildflowers. Today, I found the Eastern Columbine Wisconsin Wildflower.

Collecting Seeds
The seeds can be collected by hand from August to October by gently tapping the old flowering head. Seeds can be dried in open paper bags for about two weeks. You should store the dry seed in sealed, plastic bags and keep them in the refrigerator until you are ready to plant them. Seeds will stay viable with this method for 3 years.

Timeless Daisy Fine Art Photography Print

Timeless Daisy Fine Art Photography Print

I’m back at it again! Adding to my distressed collection. This timeless daisy fine art photography print is one for your shabby chic home decor needs.

The daisy might just be one of the most recognized flowers by sight, next to the rose. Maybe, it is so widely known because it grows everywhere in the world, except Antarctica. The daisy represents purity and innocence.  It is tough to find it faults.

I’d like to suggest that this photography print is printed on picture rag paper. Picture rag paper is an acid-free paper made of 100% cotton rag. Hands down one of my favorite papers to print on for shabby chic art.

The archival inks it is printed with a guarantee that your prints will last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.

Timeless Daisy Fine Art

 

Just select your paper under the tab “Paper”.  Additional choices I would suggest for printing paper are archival mat, glossy, metallic.  For a true statement piece, the choice is EASY. Acrylics prints are awesome!

Chose canvas to bring this Timeless Daisy Fine Art Photography Print life with the texture and depth of a stretched canvas print.   Your image gets printed on one either premium canvases and then stretched on a wooden frame of 1.5″ x 1.5″ stretcher bars (gallery wrap) or 5/8″ x 5/8″ stretcher bars (museum wrap).   All stretched canvases ship within 3 – 4 business days and arrive “ready to hang” with pre-attached hanging wire, mounting hooks, and nails.

Own this beautiful print.
